Positive: The course work is highly relevant and not typical higher education giving you all theory and no practical
Negative: The lack of community at Utas for the accounting majors (unless you're in 3rd year was disappointing

My advice to future students is: Start your reading as soon as you get told what it is!!!

Positives: The majority of teaching staff were easy to communicate with and always interested to hear how you were progressing as well as being open to suggestions and any issues you might have. The course work was applicable and practical to real world issues and situations. There was a wide variety of units and topics covered within the degree which made it interesting to learn.

Negatives: Some of the teaching staff were hard to communicate with. For example, they took a long time to reply to emails or phone calls about assignments or replied with less than satisfactory answers. Some of the course work I found irrelevant to the career I was pursuing. There was very little opportunity for practical application of our learnings, i.e. no placement opportunities, only very limited internship places. The faculty was kind of boring and very little effort was made to include all student members in social gatherings.

My advice to future students is: Ensure you have read all the unit outlines before starting the semester. Keep copies of all communication with lecturers and tutors to ensure you have proof of their poor and ineffective communication. If you are studying via distance or online, ensure you have a good internet connection.
